I don't have a Pentax K20D- but I do have a Pentax K10D.This camera is great for what I do and the K20D I imagine would be even better.

I do all my vertical aerial photos with a remote on my Pentax K10. Works great. lot less wires running around in the cockpit. My photos aren't as spectacular though.

Having being on this old planet for many moons- I know this statement is true.  "the only thing you can count is there will be change".  What is considered the standard for today will be different for tomorrow.When I was young -the way to travel was by train or bus-not airplanes. What is the "big 6" will be different some time in the future. So if you want to make money in microstock you cater to the "big 6" for the present- but at the same time you should be risking some of you time and energy in what you think will be the future "big 6". As to who will  the "big 6" ,I don't know- but remember one big hit makes up for alot of misses.

To Jimmi King: As a shooter of aerial photos - any photos I shoot the airplane better be moving or I am in big trouble

To make between $500 and $1000/month.This would pay for the overhead on my aerial photo buss. and allow me to expand it.

Thanks for the encouragement a.k.a-tom. I am learning too much and having too much fun to give it up.
Keep the oily side down-Smiling Jack

Thanks "y'all" for that good practical advice. I can see I am not going to get rich in microstock-but if it keeps me flying -I will be happy.

« on: April 10, 2008, 09:01 »
My experience with SS is kinda difference from most. Got accepted the first try(9out of 10). Then they rejected every thing since. Must have slipped in under their radar.

Thanks everybody for the help.
Snurder: The list helped in that I tell what other aerial photographers have out there for stock.
Waldo4- I have been a CFI and Com.Pilot for over 60yrs. Right now my main buss. is making aerial mosaics(maps) for small land developers and farmers in PhotoShop. This buss. is kinda up and down so I was looking to microstock(or midstock) to fill in the gaps.
Thanks again Smiling Jack

Maybe i should have said my aerial photos would fall under the heading of Landscape. They are mostly of Montana and Africa.

Waldo4: mine were all taken from small aircraft at 500 to 10,000 AGL. I also have some photos of vintage and private aircraft. I have a few files at BigStock, DT and Shutterstock under JackA. As you know I am Newbie to microstock feeling my way to see if there is a market for the 3000+ slides I have collected over the yrs. Looking for any help you guys feel you want to give.
Thanks Smiling Jack

I would be interested too, since all of my aerial photos, fall under the heading of "nature".
Thanks Smiling Jack
